Title: Russian woman charged with being Putin’s SPY by joining NRA during Trump election campaign

A RUSSIAN woman has been accused of conspiring against the US as a secret agent by infiltrating the National Rifle Association (NRA) during the last election campaign to set up backchannel communications between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Maria Butina has been charged with trying to create a secret connection between the US and Russian officials on behalf of the Russian government in a scheme that began in 2013.

She is the latest person to be arrested in the ongoing investigation into meddling in the 2016 US election.

The arrest came just three hours after Mr Trump met Putin in Helsinki, Finland, when the US president declined to side with US intelligence on election interference saying he did not see any “reason why” Russia would be responsible.

During the news conference, Putin denied any Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The investigation has so far charged 12 Russian military intelligence officers who allegedly stole and shared emails from Democratic groups.

The US Justice Department’s national security is handling the investigation following the email intrusions.

Butina, 29, worked as a special assistant to the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank, Alexander Torshin, a former Russian senator belonging to Vladimir Putin’s political party who has reported links to the Russian underground world.

Her lawyer, Robert Driscoll, denied Butina is a Russian agent and has been co-operating with the government.

FBI agents raided her Washington home in April where they took a laptop computer and an iPhone.

Mr Driscoll said: “There is simply no indication of Butina seeking to influence or undermine any specific policy of law or the United States - only at most to promote a better relationship between the two nations.”

According to prosecutors, Butina claimed that infiltrating the NRA would be key in improving Russia-US relationships.

Prosecutors said: “Russian influence operations are threat to U.S. interests as they are low-cost, relatively low-risk, and deniable ways to shape foreign perceptions and to influence populations.

“Moscow seeks to create wedges that reduce trust and confidence in democratic processes, degrade democratisation efforts, weaken U.S. partnerships with European allies, undermine Western sanctions, encourage anti-U.S. political views, and counter efforts to bring Ukraine and other former Soviet states into European institutions.”

Butina is due to appear in court again on July 18.

It seems America's founders had something other than a gun fetish in mind when they protected the 1st with the 2nd.





How Marxist collectives scoring on the "feel free to contradict our errors" front these days Comrade Willie?

Observe how (D)onny Trump exemplifies the successful demoralization of American culture.

Well, we all know just how many tens of thousands of people have been influenced in their political views by the act of this woman joining the NRA.

The timing of this arrest is very suspicious. Sounds more like it's the DOJ or whatever alphabet soup agency behind it is corruptly attempting to influence US foreign policy toward Russia.

Trump is right. A portion of US Intelligence, Congress and the FBI are absolutely hellbent on preventing peace from breaking out between the USA and Russia.

They will fail.
